Subject[PATCH 2/3] audit: fix refcounting in audit-tree
Date
From: Miklos Szeredi <mszeredi@suse.cz>

Refcounting of fsnotify_mark in audit tree is broken. E.g:

refcount
create_chunk
alloc_chunk 1
fsnotify_add_mark 2

untag_chunk
fsnotify_get_mark 3
fsnotify_destroy_mark
audit_tree_freeing_mark 2
fsnotify_put_mark 1
fsnotify_put_mark 0
via destroy_list
fsnotify_mark_destroy -1

This was reported by various people as triggering Oops when stopping auditd.

We could just remove the put_mark from audit_tree_freeing_mark() but that would
break freeing via inode destruction. So this patch simply omits a put_mark
after calling destroy_mark or adds a get_mark before.

The additional get_mark is necessary where there's no other put_mark after
fsnotify_destroy_mark() since it assumes that the caller is holding a reference
(or the inode is keeping the mark pinned, not the case here AFAICS).
